Long-term evolution of achalasia of the lower esophageal sphincter and intestinal paraneoplasic pseudo-obstruction revealing small cell lung carcinoma



Long-term evolution of achalasia of the lower esophageal sphincter and intestinal paraneoplasic pseudo-obstruction revealing small cell lung carcinoma



Gastroenterologie Clinique et Biologique 32(1 Pt. 1): 56-58



We report a case of a small cell carcinoma of the lung revealed by chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction associated with achalasia of the lower esophageal sphincter. Tumoral remission was achieved for more than 21 months after chemoradiotherapy but this did not prevent the paraneoplasic syndrome from persisting and medical treatment was not successful in treating the intestinal pseudo-obstruction or the dysphagia, which was not improved by esophageal dilation.
